    Default Backtrack 5 - How to get flash player working on Gnome / KDE x64

    In order to make flash player work on Gnome x64 we first need to remove the current one:

    Code:
    root@evilbox: apt-get purge flashplugin-nonfree flashplugin-installer gnash gnash-common mozilla-plugin-gnash swfdec-mozilla
    root@evilbox: rm -f /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    root@evilbox: rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    root@evilbox: rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so
    root@evilbox: rm -f /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper*flash*so
    root@evilbox: rm -f ~/.mozilla/plugins/*flash*so
    Then you need 2 packets:

    Flash Square: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/f...ayer10/square/
    Flash Player: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ (Get the source .tar.gz)

    NOTE: BEFORE YOU PROCEED PLEASE CLOSE FIREFOX COMPLETELY!

    Now first Flash Square:

    Code:
    root@evilbox: tar xvfz flashplayer10_2_p3_64bit_linux_111710.tar.gz
    root@evilbox: chown root:root libflashplayer.so
    root@evilbox: chmod 0644 libflashplayer.so
    root@evilbox: cp -f libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    root@evilbox: rm -rf libflashplayer.so
    root@evilbox: ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
    Now for the Flash.tar.gz:

    Code:
    root@evilbox: tar xvfz install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz
    root@evilbox: mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
    root@evilbox: mv -f libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
    Start Firefox and enjoy!

    I want to thank corelanc0d3r for helping me test this!
